· Issue electronic money and provide digital wallet services;
· Issue payment instruments and acquire payment transactions;
· Provide money remittance services;
· Execute payment transactions;
· Provide services enabling cash withdrawals from a payment account.

Kyle Paisley, Strategic Partnership Manager at Ronghan International, states: “Obtaining an EMI is a big milestone for us and demonstrates the recent fast progression of the company. Expanding into e-money services including card issuing & e-wallets for businesses is an exciting prospect this year.”
